Too Much Roving

On the last day of SAFF, it started to sink in that I have too much roving, especially since I had just dropped off more dyed fiber at Zeilingers. It occurred to me that I could have these rovings refreshed and made into felting batts! I wouldnt have to pack them back into the van! My storage problem was solved!! What a brilliant idea! I patted myself on the back for 2 weeks, until those 2 gigantic boxes boomeranged back to my doorstep.

But my UH-OH is now an OH YES!!

It might not look like much to you, but this is exhibit A: what a fabulous way to get multilayered, luminous color!

I learned at lot of things how to manage edges; how to manage shrinkage; how to make felt smooth or rough. But the BIGGEST thing that I learned was how to use inlays pre-felting and then cutting, placing shapes onto another piece. The possibilities!!

Situated on a hill overlooking the Haw River, Three Waters Farm looks out over a mixed terrain of fields, woods, and water in the piedmont of North Carolina. We moved here in 1989 with the intent to raise our family on a working homestead. Initially we produced a mix of organic vegetables, cut flowers, goat cheese, and baked goods at the Carrboro Farmers' Market.
Since 1997, we have focused on making products from our sheep's wool and our goat's milk. We produce a variety of hand-painted yarns, and spinning fibers, and from our goat's milk, we make Goat's Milk True-soap, using our own special recipe.
